12yrs + No children.£100,000approx. No mortgage. No other assets or debts. Both are retired so state pension only.
Purchase was funded from sale of my previous house, which I had transferred to joint ownership after marriage. A 1 bed flat/appartment in this area is appox £100,000 to £120,000.
I am living in a Housing Association old peoples flat, and I have been for approx 2 1/2 yrs. I have no idea where my wife wants to go.
I was offered a flat within 3 months.It seems in this area that there are more places for senior citizens than others.I cant speak for her, as she will not discuss it with me. All I know is that the home is in joint names and I am trying to get on with my life, and it is becoming difficult for me without my money. I suspect that she will have changed her will, and if anything happens to me my children will get nothing. I am 71 this year, and I dont expect to live for ever !
I just want to know if I have any chance of getting my money ????
If thats the only way to get my money, yes, but she said when I left she would not divorce me. As I understand it, after 3 years I can get divoced as long as we both agree to the settlement of the assets, but after 5 years I can just divorce her without even involving her.We have been separated 3 yrs. It all comes back to money again, and the reason I want my share of the assets, is because I have no money!!
